'This show possesses the atmospheric highs and the abyssmal lows that often accompnay the Grateful Dead listening experience. The lows are moments of real sloppy playing and probably the absolute worst Scarlet>Fire of the period...However, the Dead more than make-up for the dogs with a positively huge Truckin'...Samson and Delilah. Jack Straw, NFA and Half Step are all given the full treatment ala '77. Nice overall quality, the sloppiness and some of the real throwaways keep this one from being mentioned as one of the best '77 shows and thus not a 5 star rating. That being said, check it out for sho'

Mississippi Half Step, Jack Straw, Tennessee Jed, Mexicali Blues-> Me & My Uncle, Friend Of The Devil, Minglewood Blues, Dupree's Diamond Blues, Passenger, Dire Wolf, The Music Never Stopped Samson & Delilah, Sunrise, Scarlet Begonias-> Fire On The Mountain-> Good Lovin'-> Saint Stephen-> Drums-> Not Fade Away-> Wharf Rat-> Saint Stephen-> Truckin', E: Johnny B. Goode

OK. I just did the Scarlet>Fire again, and other than Keith being out of tune or off key kind of brutally I thought Jer-man carried it pretty well.
